Release 14 is here

The Digital Twin for Design and Operations

Data center decision makers lack the data they need to fully understand and meet the increasing infrastructure, power and cooling demands they are facing in the data center industry today. To make it easier to get the right data to meet such demands quickly, we have made significant changes to our software with Release 14 by improving the performance and interface of the data center digital twin.

Release 14 of 6SigmaDCX focuses on streamlining the capacity planning process, improving operations and consolidating the solve process. Here’s what’s new:
